Goldgenie's back and, as always, they don't want you to just be among the first to get your hands on the next iteration of the iPhone - they want you do it with flair (and a hefty price).
The British maker of luxury corporate gifts announced that it will be producing customised versions of the next Apple flagships - with 24k gold, of course - set to be launched next month and which the company "believe(s) will be named the Xs and X Plus".
There's a little catch, though: on the occasion of Goldgenie's 23rd year, the luxury 'iPhone Xs' will be limited to only 23 units, each numbered 1 to 23 and stamped with the Gold standard Assay Hallmark at Goldsmiths Hall in London.
Added perk: owners will receive top membership tier for the the Goldgenie Concierge service, giving access to a 24/7/365 VIP service catered to by their very own dedicated concierge team.
No prices were indicated on the company's release, but Goldgenie says new orders can be secured with 'just' a 50 per cent deposit.
But allow us to give you a clue: last year, when Goldgenie announced its offer for the iPhone 8, a 4.7-inch iPhone 6s in gold fetched around Dh11,500, while the iPhone 6s Diamond Rockstar Limited Edition costed around a whopping Dh46,500.
Curiously, an attempt to visit Goldgenie's website, as at posting time, returned a 'timed out' error.
Maybe a lot of people have gotten wind about the chance to get elite iPhone status and are hurrying to secure their orders?
